Australian Reading Hour 2021
Australian Reading Hour 2021 celebrates the stories that matter and explores the role of storytelling in transforming lives and shaping our sense of identity, belonging and understanding – as individuals and as a nation.
Join Maitland Library in celebrating Reading Hour on Tuesday 14 September 2021 to celebrate the joy of reading!
For children, reading has been shown to help with forming identity - setting them up for success in the future.
For adults, reading has been shown to reduce stress by 68% more than listening to music, going for a walk, or having a cup of tea.
